    Spookley was different than all the other pumpkins. He was square, and the other pumpkins made fun of him and thought that he was worthless. Spookley finally gets the chance to prove that he's just as good as all the others. Will he prevail?

    This one is certainly a keeper. It's a cute story that sends a strong message to children about the importance of kindness and that it's not right to make fun of others. A cute story and colorful illustrations.

    This is a rhyming story about a pumpkin patch wherein all the pumpkins are round, except for one square pumpkin. The night before Halloween, there is a storm, and pumpkins are rolling off the vine and into the bay. Spookley has to work hard to turn onto his side, over and over, but is able to eventually move himself to close the gap in the fence where the pumpkins are rolling out. The next morning the farmer sees the value in this odd-shaped pumpkin and uses Spookley’s seed in every row the following year to grow pumpkins mostly square, but also of different shapes and colors. The moral of the story being that variety is the spice of life and great value can be found in our differences.

    A cute little Halloween/Fall story about a square pumpkin in a patch of normal round pumpkins. The lesson is about judging based upon appearance and how our differences can also be our strengths.

    I like this book not only as a Halloween read-a-loud, but also to illustrate a difficult topic on tolerance and being different. Great downloads are available for activity sheets and lessons at and there is a good ipad ap too.

    text and pictures

    summary - This is a very creative book written about pumpkins that have different shapes and colors. The square pumpkin saves the day as he rolls himself to the corner so the rest of the pumpkins don't roll into the bay. Everyone who reads this story will enjoy how the character of the pumpkin is developed and then how they start to create other pumpkins that are different just like Spookley was different.

    This is the fun story of Spookley - a pumpkin who is square. The other pumpkins tease him for his strange shape until one night when he saves the rest of the pumpkins from blowing through a broken fence and out to sea. After Spookley's brave feat, the farmer sows Spookley's seeds in the pumpkin patch year after year, producing pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors.

    Beyond the ugly duckling theme, the book is also great for fall and Halloween. Delightfully illustrated by Susan Banta, this is a book I am sure I will continue to pull out year after year.

    This is an excellent book to help teach children to not judge a book by its cover. The little pumpkin is square and he is upset because he's not like the others and can't roll. One day when a storm comes in, the little pumpkins are rolling through a hole in the fence and out into the water. Since it's harder for the square pumpkin to be blown by the wind, he force tumbles himself to the spot in the fence where the hole was so that no other pumpkins will roll out.

    After reading this book, we had a discussion about pumpkins and how they are mostly all round or oval. I asked my son what Spookley was, thinking he would say different or square. He said special! Yeah, he got the point! We related pumpkins to all the people around us, and in the end, we decided Spookley was a good read.
